Volunteers from Rodolph Brothers Tree & Landscaping removed the 50-foot Colorado blue spruce from it’s Mills home of some 60-years early Tuesday morning.

All 3,000 lbs of tree was transported by flatbed to David Street Station, where it was carefully lifted by crane and placed on a base in the plaza. It is held up by four guy wires.
